. >> is she right? what difference does it make? or is she wrong? >> i think it does make a difference, john, but i think she handled herself extremely well. there are three questions. why was security not provided despite the pleas. why was help not sent to these guys over seven hours of attacks, and what is responsible for the massive cover-up and fake stories about this video, anti-muslim video. she said to the third, i had nothing to do with the talking points, nothing to do with the military, i take responsibility for the lack of security. however, all these memos and cables that came, they all didn't come into my office personally, but i take responsibility. i think she handled it well, john. and the issue i think is pretty much gone now, and the republicans did it not succeed in what they were trying to cue. >> how would you describe hillary clinton at the house and the senate hearings? what kind of an adjective would you use? >> i would say she was commanding, i would say she was presidential. she came across very much as someone who is shouldering responsibility but she also avoided
and oppose the whole concept of this consumer bureau thinking it is not really necessary. bill: john kerry, nominated next hour. martha: yep. bill: interesting how he was actually on the schedule for the committee hearing at hillary clinton before hillary clinton sat down. martha: you can't chair a hearing and be in front of the table next day. bill: funny the way washington works. we're just getting moving here. notre dame's manti te'o is talking. why he says he continued to talk about a dead fake girlfriend after he knew she was a fake in the first place. martha: such a bizarre story. a deadly deep freeze. huge parts of the country are now experiencing temperatures so cold that a ski resort has now shut down. bill: and hopes for bipartisanship, is that already over? i mean it has been three days. why a top republican leader says president obama wants to annihilate the republican party. >> let me just tell you. i do believe that is their goal, to just shove us into the dustbin of it had. -- history hey, our salads.

. she brought down john gotti, and she brought down the terrorists responsible for bombing the world trade center and the embassies and africa. that is a pretty good run. you don't want to mess with mary jo. mary jo does not intimidate easily, and that is important because she has a big job ahead of her. there is much more work to be done to complete the task of making sure that investors are better informed and better protected going forward. and we need to keep going after irresponsible behavior in the financial industry so that taxpayers don't pay the price. i am absolutely confident that mary jo has the confidence and resolve to tackle these issues in a way that is smart and fear, and i want to thank elisse walter, who has done an outstanding job of holding down the fort is chairman, and i expect the senate to confirm mary jo as soon as possible so she can get to work. my next nominee is a familiar face could a year ago i nominated richard cordray to help give americans the information they need to make a sound financial crisis and protect them from unscrupulous lenders. nobody q
justice john roberts, jr. the public swearing-in and all the pomp and circumstance that go with it were put off until today and what a day it is. the temperature right now is in the high 30s. the sky is clear, a brilliant winter's day in the nation's capital. people are pouring into the national mall to witness a day of history. the first family began the day by attending services at st. john's church. that's right across the street from the white house. that's a long-standing tradition for presidents on inauguration day. joining me now in our cbs coverage is bob schieffer, our chief washington correspondent and anchor of ""face the nation."" bob, what are you expecting to see? >> well, it's going to be an important day for the nation, but i must say, you know, the fiscal cliff negotiations, the slaughter of those children in connecticut made it difficult for washington to be festive this time around. it's also a very unusual atmosphere because of this gridlock. i mean, you're not hearing people talk about hope and renewal this time around, but is the government broken? the whole system

of state there john husted began stumping for this idea of making the electoral college change. hey, it's just an idea, right? but now it's very, very quiet in ohio. and that leaves michigan. oh, michigan. michigan, my nominee for incapable of being embarrassed. move over, florida. michigan has a bill on the way with the republican sponsor who is quite unembarrassed by the attention now or his failure to pass the same kind of bill last year. quote, the bill got no traction last year. there were people convinced romney was going to win. and that might take electoral votes from him. but now, now that romney lost, now maybe even rick snyder, the governor is warming up to the idea this week and saying so publicly. governor snyder saying it is fair to change the rules since the election is not for a few more years yet. we started this week with six states on the map where republicans were talking about changing the rules to elect the president so you could use the gerrymandered congressional maps to make the presidential election go the way the house vote went this year where democrats got m
a terrible four years as far as farm policy. host: what you make of john kerry taking over the position? are you hopeful you will see a different course taken? caller: i don't think so. he enjoys being in the limelight a lot. this is something he has been looking forward to for a long time. i think he will overshadow the president in many ways. i don't think there will be any significant accomplishment by him. host: thanks for scott paul. samuelson wrote a peice -- robert samuelson in the washington post. john from pennsylvania is next on the independent line. good morning. caller: hello. i agree with fishing sam. i think it will just continue. we have to get out of. so many of we are in somalia, yemen, iraq. we will probably be in egypt and iran. it is ridiculous. you don't see china and germany and other great economies throughout the world trying to continue colonialism or imperialism or whatever you want to call it. zogby to pull back, take care of the u.s. -- we need to pull back. we are shortchanging the u.s. host: this is more from yesterday, secretary clinton giving her assessme

in additional team and the reply from john sada unfortunately it cannot support the request. there was a request made for more security, and was denied on june 7th. madam secretary, you left the consulate become a death trap and that is national security malpractice. you said you take responsibility. what does responsibility mean? you are still in your job and there are people of the department states that have culpability that are still in their jobs. i heard the answer about firing or removing personnel. i get that, but this was gross negligence. at what point in time can our administration and government fighters someone whose gross negligence left four americans dead in benghazi? what is the word responsibility to you, madam secretary? >> i think i've made that very clear, congressman. and let me say that we have come here and have made a very open, transparent presentation. i did not have to declassify the arb to it i could have joined 18 of the other arb under the democratic and republican administration, kept it classified and then just said goodbye. that's not who i am. that's not what i
information. >> ifill: republican john mccain pressed clinton on why u.s. consular staff evacuated from libya to germany weren't questioned sooner. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors, who were flown to ramstein the next day, that they-- that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say that it's because an investigation was going on-- the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. so here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. now, if you want to go out and tell the american people what happened, you should at least have interviewed the people who were there instead of saying, no, we couldn't talk to them because an f.b.i. investigation was going on. >> well, senator, i understand your very strong feelings. you knew chris. you were a friend of chris. you were one of the staunchest supporters of the efforts to dislodge qaddafi and try to give the libyan people a chance. and we just have a disagreement. we have a disagreement about what did happen
against mob boss john gotti. she won the conviction that put him in prison for the rest of his life. several other prosecutors had tried to do that, but had failed to it. she did it. in 1996 she helped convict ramzi yousef for his attempt to assassinate the pope and blow up multiple planes in flight. he was the nephew of sheikh khalid mohammed. in 1991 she helped prosecute four-the men who helped orchestrate the embassy bombing in africa. president obama nominated mary jo white to be the what is essentially the top cop of wall street. >> as one former chairman said, mary jo does not intimidate easily, and that's important, because she has a big job ahead of her there is much more work to be done to complete the task of reforming watts to make sure american investors are better protected going forward. >> it's not the only thing you should know about her career given this nomination. it's also the matter of her decade as a defense attorney, not a prosecutor, but a defense attorney. when she left the prosecutor's office in '02, she went to a private law firm. she started prosecuting c

obama officially nominated john brennan to the director of the cia, succeeding retired general david petraeus, who resigned. nickname the assassination czar, brennan was the first obama administration official to publicly confirm drone attacks overseas and to defend their legality. four years ago, john brennan was rumored pick for the cia job when obama was first elected but was forced to withdraw from consideration amid protests over his role at the cia under the bush in ministration. obama also officially nominated chuck hagel to head defense and john kerry to become secretary of state on monday. joining us here in park city, utah, is jeremy scahill, national security correspondent for the nation magazine. he is featured in and co-wrote the new documentary, "dirty wars: the world is a battlefield." book with thest same title is due out in april. we're also joined by the director of the film, rick rowley, independent journalist with big noise films. the film premiered here at the sundance film festival in the u.s. documentary competition section. when we flew in a salt lake city las
to this shortly -- john mccain and rand paul were tough on her. they were not backing down. >> that's right. republicans were focused on, one, the administration specifically the united nations ambassador susan rice initially in the sunday show appearances, on all five sunday shows that sunday but also an initial discussion about what happened in benghazi, the word was that this was not a terrorist attack, this was a spontaneous protest because of the anti-islam video which of course turns out not to have been the case and a lot senators were focused on why were these talking points false. johnson said dr. rice was purposefully misleading the american public. dr. rice said she was not, she was using the talking points used by the intelligence committee and no effort to mislead. she was providing as much information as she knew at the time. the other information by senator rand paul talking about the lack of accountability, how come nobody was fired. he said if he had been presented at time, and this is somebody who harbors ambitions, he would have relieved secretary clinton of her jobs, spe
the reigns to senator john kerry after his confirmation. joining me now from washington, david ignatius of the "washington post." later we'll talk to michael gordon of the "new york times." david, as you watched this today, did it answer all the questions? >> well, it was-- it was a very lively exchange. most of the answers in truth have come out in the details, the report by the accountability review board, and the systematic timeline that it offered. what today provided was the drama of secretary clinton and her final major appearance defending herself, defending the administration, and getting very emotional and very feisty. and i think what we took away from this was how intense feelings are on both sides. the republicans really went after her today, and she-- she-- she pushed back hard. >> rose: did they, as they say,a lay a glove on her? >> well, i think on the basic issues here, benghazi, the republicans have a point. as the accountability review board report says, staffing for diplomat security was grossly inadequate. repeated requests came from benghazi for more diplomatic secu
john roberts. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i, barack hussein obama do solemnly swear. >> i barack hussein obama do solemnly swear that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the united states, so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> 3 activist groups have received permission to protest president obama along the route of the nrk parade. the anti-war group answers says it expects -- we will have more on the inauguration after headlines. alice four people have been killed in u.s. drone strike inside yemen. yemeni government says the attack of four militants but the claim has not been independently verified. the attack comes one day after those of anger of the drone attacks blocked a main road linking the targeted town with the capital. the obama administration meanwhile reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakistan from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism ad
want to bring in joe johns. he's also working his sources. what are you hearing, joe? >> well, we've got the fbi, the alcohol, tobacco, firearms bureau and others converging on the scene and we're told there are about five different local agencies surrounding the woods there looking for that one shooter who apparently has not been identified. as ed reported, this sounds very different, wolf, from the types of situations we've seen aurora, colorado, newtown, connecticut, and other places where one individual went in indiscriminately and started shooting. this appears to be an altercation between two people in a school setting which makes it sound like more like the things we've seen at public schools and major metropolitan areas and some other universities where police have to start asking questions, was it drug-related, was it gang-related, was this a score settling of any type? these are the types of questions. and congresswoman sheila jackson lee of texas who represents this area, harris county, texas, was asked that question and sort of restated it on air a while ago but we dou
clinton and john avlon. michael, let me start with you. obviously that was a reference, a rather oblique one, to the gun control debate, but a reference it appeared to be. the fourth school shooting, though, in more than a month. nearlyalf the american people disapprove of what the president is doing on gun control. is it time now for less talk and more action from the president on gun control? >> well, you're right, that in that powerful speech yesterday, he used the words and the sentiments of the founders to argue for his agenda and one of the elements obliquely, though not explicitly, was gun control. now, he took the first step with those 19 executive actions, but the next step of course is in the hands of congress, where the nra has been one of the most powerful forces for years and years and years. the really interesting question is this. this horrible shooting today following on those other horrible shootings, of course we've had these before, but since newtown, perhaps things have tipped. now the media is paying attention. every time it's a new bit of information about why we ne
the speech. something we'll be discussing later with john lewis. it's an added emotional contact. >> absolutely. the civil rights movement created the possibility for barack obama to become president and i think he's ever mindful of that. i think that's where that community organizing comes in him. he knows that communities create the power. you think about the gay rights movement, the civil rights movement, the women's movement, this is all part of who he is and i think it's part of american history. when i look at american history, those movements are critical in transforming our attitudes about ourselves and about one another. and that's where real change takes place. lincoln said, you control public sentiment, controls everything. even if they can't control my voice. >> sometimes when historians try to speak too much in the course of one inaugural weekend, this is what happens. we're going to allow doris rest her voice for a second. you saw when we were talking a motorcade and you'd be forgiven for thinking there's the president on the move from the white house. it was not. f
down here, and it is john weisman. who is he? >> guest: he is the co-author of the book, and actually, he is the man responsible to a great extent for the book, because he was the one who convinced me to write my autobiography. c-span: why did he care? >> guest: well, he saw me testify in congress, and at the beginning he told me that he thought it was a great novel, and then he went back and he thought that it was a very good story to tell, and he finally got through, by a common friend that we had, to be able to convince me -- it took him about six months to convince me to write the book. i think one of the factors that contributed most to that was what i had to go through, and my family had to go through, with senator kerry's committee, and i thought it was a good idea then to write the book and set the record straight on that account. c-span: when was the first time you ever told anybody that you worked for the cia, outside of your family, in other words, publically? >> guest: well, after i retired, i retired openly, so when i retired, i could tell people that i worked for the cia
spending cuts are proposing more spending. that's a separate issue. john, let me ask you about this that i referenced in texas. they are now saying there's a law being considered, a bill in texas, where if you're already allowed to carry concealed hand gun, you would now be allowed to carry that concealed hand gun on a college or university campus. is that bill going to change because of what happened today or is it just going to go full ahead? >> let's hope so. if there's some common sense and decency on the part of the legislators to respond to changing facts on the ground. look, this shooting is a case study for why more guns on college campuses are a terrible idea. i mean, it doesn't pass the common sense test. anyone who has been to college, it's hard to imagine a worst case scenario than a bunch of college students with more guns. every once in awhile this ideological driven idiocy is not driven by reality. four school shootings since newtown? at what point will we get a reality check and realize the worst thing we can do is have more guns on college campuses? today is a reality chec
22 months. well, john, thank you. i have and you know this because we've talked about this at great length, i have a complete understanding of where you are coming from this and what you are trying to say about the way i do want to say to you that i don't want inquisitive nose or curiosity about what possibilities might exist to be translated and optimism. i don't have optimism. i had hoped because the easiest way to resolve it would be if they -- if together we were able to find some track that changed the equation and the calculation. but i think everybody worries about, john, is that if you have a complete inclusion of the state's, nobody has clear definition of how you put those pieces back to work number one. and number two, you have a greater risk with respect to the chemical weapons. that's why i want to get in and see what the contingency plans are because i can't measure the risk without having the sense of what is on the table. what i do know is that there are a lot of weapons there. they are not hesitating to provide weapons for coming and that is one of the reasons toget
in a diplomatic role. she hands over the reigns to senator john kerry after his confirmation. joining me now from washington, david ignatius of the "washington post." later we'll talk to michael gordon of the "new york times." david, as you watched this today, did it answer all the questions? >> well, it was-- it was a very lively exchange. most of the answers in truth have come out in the details, the report by the accountability review board, and the systematic timeline that it offered. what today provided was the drama of secretary clinton and her final major appearance defending herself defending the administration, and getting very emotional and very feisty. and i think what we took away from this was how intense feelings are on both sides. the republicans really went after her today and she-- she-- she pushed back hard. >> rose: did they as they say,a lay a glove on her? >> well, i think on the basic issues here, benghazi, the republicans have a point. as the accountability review board report says, staffing for diplomat security was grossly inadequate. repeated requests came from benghazi
think if you look at these numbers, over 70% of americans like him. he has a 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. those are pretty good numbers. and i think also there are glimmers of hope for those of us who believe the president has stayed on his side of pennsylvania avenue too much. he said over the past week or two, his daughters are getting older, they don't like hanging around dad as much anymore. >> he's lonely. >> he's lonely. the president used to tell anybody that would listen, i work and then i go upstairs and i'm with my family. you can't trivialize the fact that he is talking about reaching out more, not only to republicans, we hear the same complaint from democratic senators as well, it's a good sign and let's hope things get done. we have to make this city work again. >> tom's point, the perils of a second term, you have thought about this and talked to the president about it. how does he map out these next four years? >> first of all, i want to say i appreciate the priorities that tom laid out. but there's a larger priority of which this is part
